Blue Heron is engaged in the exploration of vocal music of the Renaissance and Medieval periods. Putting the study of original sources in the service of persuasive, vivid and exciting concert presentations, the ensemble is now established as the finest of its type in North America; on the strength of its 2017 CD of music from the Peterhouse partbooks the group and its director Scott Metcalfe have been named as one of three finalists for a Gramophone Award for Early Music (winners to be announced Aug.
31, 2018).
Founded in 1999, and based in the Boston area, Blue Heron offers a home subscription series in Harvard Square, and it has released on its own label seven exceptional recordings. A boxed set entitled "The Lost Music of Canterbury", containing all the music from a 5 CD set -- called "one of the most important early choral projects of our time" (D. James Ross, Early Music Review (UK)) -- is due out in September 2018. Blue Heron’s recordings also include a CD of music to accompany the book "Capturing Music: The Story of Notation" by Thomas Forrest Kelly, which was published in November 2014 by W. W. Norton. Jessie Ann Owens (University of California, Davis) and Blue Heron have won the 2015 Noah Greenberg Award from the American Musicological Society, widely considered the highest honor for Early Music on this side of the Atlantic.
